    Double-clicking on the iso file should mount the disk contained in the file.

    Double clicking mounts it and brings me to a folder I click on the folder and inside that is the following..

    This is a imagefile of a DVD. All you need after you mounted it on the desktop, to start DVD Player and it should start to play it automaticly!

    Thanks.. You were correct. But, I'd like to load this into iMovie and rip the audio off of it. Is this going to be possible in the current format?

    No, not in the format it is currently in. Download and install Handbrake to convert the DVD compressed files to mp4 files. (I tried to find you a link to Handbrake but I'm at work and their site is blocked on our network. Just google 'Handbrake' and it should come up)

    Cinematize will extract the audio from video_ts (DVD mpeg2 format) which the movie is currently in. its a bit pricey though.

    if you use handbrake to convert to mpeg4 there will be some quality loss but for audio i guess it wont be noticeable.

    One quick last question.. Since it's an image can I just burn this to a DVD and play it on my home DVD player?
